That Overstock/XCP alliance might end up being hard to execute...may face some regulatory hurdles...definitely some possible stumbling blocks.

BUT...if they do what they are trying to do, it could also completely revolutionize financial markets.  I mean, it could be THE big thing.  It could legitimize some of the bitcoin-is-the-internet-of-money, or at least blockchain-is-the-internet-of-money commentary we've heard.

I thought this article was good because even I could follow it: http://www.wired.com/2014/10/overstock-com-assembles-coders-build-bitcoin-like-stock-market/

I'm a little surprised some of the other alts haven't gone up in sympathy with XCP, especially BTM (disclosure: I do own about 1 BTC worth)

Edit: looks like Doge has taken that ride up...microtransactions FTW?  Which is part of why I thought BTM might.

I could definitely see something like btm catching on around the Internet in the future.

So if the stock market becomes decentralized, what will that do to the HFT industry? Will they become miners?

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

New thread!

Forgive my petulance and oft-times, I fear, ill-founded criticisms, and forgive me that I have, by this time, made your eyes and head ache with my long letter. But I cannot forgo hastily the pleasure and pride of thus conversing with you.

It won't happen ! ASICs company will temporary jack up the market in order to let their ASICs sales and this should be push back to 400+ in few days. If they don't do this they will have to end their ASICs business.

There's no question is struggling. Like I said, All the major indices have weekly or intermediate term sell signals on.  I'm looking for a particular structural configuration that occurs at the majority of all major tops.  Unfortunately, it'sa  piece meal process that will take weeks to months

My view is that what happens to the stock market will have long lasting effects on the adoption of Bitcoin.

I penned a newsletter at the San Jose conf back in 2013 called Wall Street versus Silicon Valley. In other word,  paper pushers versus productivity drivers.

I still think Silicon Valley wins.

Posted this in the wall observer as well

Another Billionaire investing in bitcoin companies

New York City-based SolidX has raised $3m to bring financial instruments – including ‘total return swaps’ – to large institutional bitcoin investors.

Founded in early 2014, SolidX’s funding round came from a group of investors led by Liberty City Ventures and hedge fund manager James Pallotta.


http://www.coindesk.com/solidx-raises-3-million-give-institutional-investors-better-access-bitcoin/

"James Pallotta (born March 13, 1958), is an Italian American investor and hedge fund manager and, since August 27, 2012, the president of the Italian association football club A.S. Roma.

In 2005, he had income of about 200 million dollars as Managing Director of Tudor Investment Corporation. Pallotta's net worth has been estimated to be more than a billion dollars. In addition to his investment in A. S. Roma and other investments, Pallotta is a minority vanity shareholder in the Boston Celtics.[2]"


Did a little research. Pallotta founded the Raptor Group which offers Raptor Capital Management a $192 million fund

Would be nice if he begins offering btc to clients as well
